Woods' Story

Woods Coffee was established in 2002 by the Herman family of Lynden, Washington. With a dream of starting a chain of coffee shops, the Hermans pooled their talents and resources to create the first Woods Coffee shop in Lynden. After six months, they opened their second store in the same town. Since then, they have been on a steady growth track. The Herman family now has Woods Coffee locations throughout the Pacific Northwest, located in Whatcom County, Skagit County, King County, and British Columbia.

Woods Bakery

All the food served at Woods is made fresh daily in our Bakery, located at our headquarters in Lynden, WA.

We source the freshest of ingredients from local farms, and provide all our stores fresh new food every night so it is ready for you every morning. How's that for fresh?

Woods Roastery

Opened in the spring of 2016, the Roastery is the all-new way to experience coffee in Whatcom County.

Visit the Woods Coffee Roastery to see where all Woods Coffee is roasted fresh, and make sure to grab a bag of our whole bean coffee, or a growler of our Cold Brew, all produced on site.
